CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies, has expanded its relationship with Fintyre, the leading distributor of replacement tires in Italy. Fintyre will now use CEVA’s TyreCity facility to provide warehousing activities for its “stock buffer” products, storing a total of 90,000 tires across a 60,000-strong product range.
CEVA’s TyreCity is the sector specific hub fully dedicated to warehousing, handling and cross docking of tire products; it is located in Somaglia, in the province of Lodi. Thanks to the specialized TyreCity facility, Fintyre will benefit from specific and deep sector expertise, high service levels and operational excellence.
“With the opening of TyreCity, we decided to rely on CEVA for warehousing management of our stock buffer, expanding our relationship that already includes imports flow management of our products from the Far East. Thanks to the benefits of TyreCity, Fintyre can now guarantee more high level service, reliability and speed to final users,” said Nicola Melillo, General Manager of Fintyre.
“We are delighted to have Fintyre as a customer at the CEVA TyreCity and we are proud to share our operational excellence, expertise and benefits with the leader of tire distribution in Italy.
